On November 22nd Grateful Dead Productions, in a swift move, had Archive.org, Nugs.net and other sites remove all of their nearly 3,000 downloadable shows. This contradicts not only the official statements of GDP, the comments of band members and flies in the face of 40 years of grassroots support and loyalty by the fans. Therefore we, the undersigned, ask that the band, who once stood for no walls between themselves and the audience, tear down this wall they just constructed and return the music to the fans.

Online petitions aren't worth the paper they're written on. Please snailmail GDP:

I agree with you there, especially since the reference to "other sites" doesn't even appear to be *truthful*?
